About Robert

TRAVELING THE ROAD OF LEARNING TOGETHER

For experienced educators like me, tutoring is perhaps the most rewarding style of teaching because 1) you get to work with one or a few students rather than a whole class, 2) there is opportunity to learn and adapt to the student’s learning style and mechanisms, and 3) you share the student’s emotional rewards of confidence and achievement knowing you are the catalyst for learning success. So I look forward to the opportunity to become your tutor as much as you look forward to tutoring as a solution to your current knowledge challenges, ambitions and goals.

The student populations I have served have had significant academic, cultural, ethnic and economic diversity. I have taught at open admission community colleges, large urban universities, selective medical schools, NASA Johnson Space Center, guest presentations for various K-12 curricula and even in remote villages of Central America. I consistently have earned positive student and colleague feedback and evaluation, and at the University of Houston I was named a “master teacher,” offering guidance in the art and science of effective interaction with students. My academic roles have always included advising and mentoring which I thoroughly enjoy; I’m an effective communicator and cultivate student trust and rapport. My educational principles always have defined my faculty role as a facilitator, motivator and advocate. Ultimate responsibility for learning resides with each student, but instruction should offer alternative means to that end. As the Chinese proverb says, teachers open the door, you enter by yourself. Arriving at any educational pursuit with diverse learning styles and skills, and challenged by not only the curriculum, but also by life beyond the classroom, within reason each student deserves to be accommodated and all deserve to be commended for their academic, career and personal ambitions. Moreover, not every student achieves immediate training and program success for myriad reasons, but with tutoring, family and peer support, academic counseling and mentoring as appropriate and available, pure determination and pragmatic goal-setting, every student can find personal success. My philosophy as a veteran educator, including tutoring, is encapsulated in the famous quotation that “the brain is a fire to be kindled, not a vessel to be filled.”

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I work part-time for a language tutoring company, teaching ESL. I use their workbooks as well as Web material, and we cover grammar, sentence construction, pronunciation and idioms, both written and spoken. Students are of various ages and ethnic backgrounds, and I have been rated as a very effective instructor.
